Until Summer 2021
In response to the many questions & concerns Camp Argo is receiving pertaining to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, please review the information & links below. They will provide important guidance for Camp Argo including waivers, imposed Executive Orders, and resources to support Camp Argo during this time.
Camp Argo is an outdoor, recreational day camp located on 42 acres in Orange, Connecticut where siblings and friends can come together to enjoy the benefits of a summer experience.
Additionally, Camp Argo strives to accomodate campers with different social abilities in a safe, nurturing environment.
Camp Argo is a non-profit organization and our mission is to promote and embrace the philosophy that “Everyone can be a HERO!” At Camp Argo we strongly feel that it is important for your child to grow through interactive play, traditional and non-traditional sports, and other creative outlets in a safe learning environment.
Camp Argo believes in empowering campers to dream big, be kind to one another, find their strengths, try their best, and learn to lead by example. To us at Camp Argo, this is the definition of a HERO!
Camp Argo helps each camper realize that the attributes of a true HERO are within all of us! With this in mind, our program is designed to emphasize the HERO-like characteristics that we discover within each other when trying new activities, participating in recreational group games, spending time with our peers, and giving back in the community.
In doing so Camp Argo recognizes the courageous & resilient HEROIC qualities our campers demonstrate and honor them at the end of each day. Also, Camp Argo invites local heroes, community leaders, artists, entertainers, and educators to come speak and work with our campers to give them a full, engaging camp experience.
Camp Argo was named after the heroic story of Jason and the Argonauts, and their quest to retrieve the Golden Fleece. The Golden Fleece was the wool coat of a golden winged ram that was so valuable, the king had it hung on a tree protected by a fierce dragon. It was a feat deemed impossible.
Jason selected a team of HEROES called the Argonauts after the ship they were to set sail on, the Argo. It was to take them on a tremendous adventure where they would face many challenges along the way to retrieve the Golden Fleece. Each of the heroes played significant roles in winning these difficult challenges by using their personal strengths.
Similarly, our campers will also partake in many challenges and adventures throughout the summer. We hope our campers will use their individual talents to succeed in the activities they participate in at Camp Argo and to discover their inner HERO!

At Camp Argo we feel that a big reason why campers will return year after year is in part because of the amazing relationship between themselves and our counseling staff.
We are determined to hire the most incredible individuals that are committed to the physical, mental, emotional, and social development of each camper.
The staff is excited to welcome your camper upon arrival and ensure they feel safe and connected to their group. Their focus will be to encourage your camper to believe in their abilities while learning new skills and having a blast all summer!
Camp Supervisors & Specialists

Sydney is so excited to welcome all campers and staff, while taking on the new role as Wellness Supervisor. She can't wait to combine her love of mental and physical wellness, supporting kids, and summer fun all together this summer at Camp Argo!
This summer, as one of our Camp Inclusion Supervisors, Linda is prepared to bring her passion for inclusion, patience, and creativity to camp. She is especially excited to return because she LOVES working with our amazing crew!

For those that are high school age and older, you may apply as a Volunteer Counselor and the hours worked may satisfy your community service requirements. According to the State of CT Dept of Public Health Youth Camp states that if you are at least 16 years old, you may apply to be a Volunteer Counselor .
A positive attitude and genuine enthusiasm for working with children are vital as a Head Counselor at Camp Argo. This is a great opportunity to build leadership skills while spending the summer outdoors! Patience is critical because our campers are away from home for the day and you may need to calm their nerves and help everyone have a great experience.

Our Specialists deliver a safe, fun and appropriate specials program to all campers ages and abilities. They are self motivated, enthusiastic and energetic when engaging with campers. Areas of focus at Camp Argo include Creative Arts, Archery, Canoeing & Fishing.
Camp Argo and our future campers want a professional that is passionate about working with children, is creative, thoughtful, adaptive, and able to be a part of a team! Our Supervisors concentrate primarily on the health & safety of the entire camp program, as well as Camp Activities Schedule, Inclusion Campers & Camper/Staff Wellness.
